It seems that context is everything these days. To me, "riding" means cycling. To my buddy Frank, "riding" means motorcycling. To a snowboarder, "riding" means boarding. The other day one of my clients said she was going "riding". I just drew a blank (assumed she didn't mean snowboarding, in August!) until I learned she's one of the horsey set.
